44: Doomsday

In the first or second thrillcast Cyber-Matt mentioned the Doomsday books (plural) - and when you start adding in all the Bad Frendz/Worst of Frendz/Scorpion Dance stuff that makes a lot of sense. Tour of Duty and Day of Chaos will presumably also get two books apiece.

Seems likely. They'll probably be separated as Issues but sit next to each other in Part order.

I asked on the Mega Collection FB page a while back weather or not if The Black Widow would be released and apparently its going to be put out with Vol. 74 so i can only assume it means it'll come with either the other two Nosferatu stories or some Heavy Metal Dredd.

More recently i asked if Cal-Hab Justice would be released and whilst they said it would, i got no exact book number.

Also im not sure but didn't they say that the Inspectere would be collected?

I must admit that the Heavy Mob wasn't my favourite books.  I haven't reread the Cursed Earth as I had read it not that long ago, but its good to have.

Devlin Waugh....I'm not really sure how to take this guy.  The stories, and indeed the character is interesting but some of the artwork is a bit patchy.  I'm not sure how to describe it, it's as if there was a certain style at some times.  For example, the artwork in the Star Wars:Dark Empire book was for me a style I wasn't keen on.  It might have just been a style of the time.  I prefer some artwork styles over others.  It won't dissuade me from continuing my subscription though.  So far I've only had a few books with stories I've read.  Cursed Earth, Apocalypse War/Block Mania, the Shamballa story in Shamballa and Father Earth in Heavy Mob.

Would dearly love to see the DoC collected into a single volume.
And with the Michael Carroll 'Downtime' episode re-instated.

In terms of page count, its the longest Dredd epic, but if Block Mania/Apocalypse War can fit into a single release...

The wikipedia page says Judge Child is coming out after Shimura.

If Judge Child is 163 pages (thanks Barney) what else could be packaged up with this issue?

Maybe the first Fink story?

To complete the tale, City of the Damned (93 pages) and not forgetting 'In the year 2120' (24 pages) from prog 1077.

That would be about 280 pages in total. Too much of a stretch for one book?

I'd have thought the Zombie Dredd tale would have been packaged with COTD.

Darkside's due for a reprint fairly soon in any case - Case Files 26, no?
